Beers and Bears

July 2, 2008

I spent a few days in Copenhagen.  We were hosted by a few Danes of another artist working at the ceramic center in Berlin. It was nice to hang out with some locals.  I didn’t feel like playing tourist so I just hung out, wondered around, read a book, and drank a few cold ones in a few different neighborhoods.  Danish people speak english very well so the language wasn’t a problem.  I met a few locals one night at a bar and have a long list of stories.  They bought me a few beers and one guy told me a story about when he was thirteen in Greenland him and his friend were out hunting.  They both had sleds pulled by dogs.  Out of no where come a polar bear.  After it tore the heads off four of his friends dogs and had attacked and killed three of his he shot it three times and killed it.  Can you imagine?  He said he shit his pants, no joke!!  If you could see this guys face there was no doubt it was nothing but truth.  

I traveled for a good part of the afternoon and arrived back in Berlin.  It is time to get to work.  Our show is in two and a half weeks.  Scary!!!!

    Oh my goodness! The story about the polar bear is really scary…those poor puppies! I’m glad to hear you are having such a great time. We need to set up some time for David and I to go over to your parents house so we can talk to you on skype. I can tell David misses you. He keeps saying “I need to talk to my brother!” Let us know what night works good for you next week. Maybe Monday or Tuesday? David doesn’t think he is going to have to go down to the Lake next week to help your dad. But, the following week he will most likely have to go :(.

    Have a great weekend! 🙂
